Escape From B Movie Hell. Wishing Shelf Book Award Winner: Teen Section, Bronze, 2015 (oh yeh).


First contact in films was never like this…

If you asked Andi Turbot whether she had anything in common with Flash Gordon she’d say no, emphatically. Saving the world is for dynamic, go-ahead, leaders of men and while it would be nice to see a woman getting involved for a change, she believes she could be the least well-equipped being in her galaxy for the job. 

Then her best friend, Eric, reveals that he is an extraterrestrial. He’s not just any ET either. He’s Gamalian: seven-foot, lobster-shaped and covered in Marmite-scented goo. Just when Andi’s getting used to that he tells her about the Apocalypse and really ruins her day.

The human race will perish unless Eric’s Gamalian superiors step in. Abducted and trapped on an alien ship, Andi must convince the Gamalians her world is worth saving. Or escape from their clutches and save it herself.

Independent Reviewers Say…

This is a funny story, full of great characters, even though most of them wade through marmite scented goo and have a tendency to clack their pincers at you. There’s serious stuff at the bottom of it but it’s taken lightly and, although it’s a long book, trust me, it flies past. I love this and would enjoy more or similar.Ignitebooks 5 Star Indies (Amazon top 500 reviewer).

Amazon Reviewers Say…

I adored this book, it is everything I’ve been missing since the end of the Hitchhikers’ Guide series.”

The further I got into the book; the harder it became to put it down”

It has a great plot with really convincing characters that are well written…”
